Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War piece of currency from Confederate Virginia. This $1.00 note was issued by the Bank of Scottsville on May 15, 1861.
The bank was authorized on May 28, 1852 and operated as a free bank until the beginning of the Civil War when it began issued unregistered notes, a common practice for many, if not most, of the state's free banks. The bank ordered $1 notes from Hoyer & Ludwig, both with and without a protector. Oddly the protector, as seen on this note, has the 1s reversed (mirror image). The note has a pretty skillfully sealed edge tear in the right margin that goes through the mechanic's waist but does not prevent the note from facing up quite well. It is correctly hand signed and numbered. These notes are printed on the front side and were left blank on the reverse. This is known to collectors as the bill being "Uniface". The note is in circulated condition and is 100% authentic in all regards. It has the overall size of the note measures 6-3/4ths inches by 2-7/8ths inches. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation.
